Doing Business in India

About

Join us for an exclusive event tailored for manufacturers eager to tap into India's rapidly expanding market. Recently, India surpassed China to become the world's most populous nation, with 1.44 billion people. This demographic shift includes a burgeoning middle class of 350 million consumers, driving high demand for U.S.-made products, services, and technologies in key sectors such as:

  • Industry 4.0/Advanced Manufacturing
  • Design and Engineering Services
  • Automotive
  • Machinery and Equipment
  • Cleantech
  • IT/ICT Software
  • Medical Equipment
  • Aerospace/Defense

India, now the world's fifth-largest economy with a GDP of $4.112 trillion, boasts the fourth-largest automotive industry globally. With Moody's projecting a GDP growth rate of 6.5% by 2025, fueled by a young, skilled, and cost-effective labor force, the country is ripe for investment and collaboration.

Ongoing business and economic reforms have significantly improved India's global economic integration, especially as Western companies seek to diversify their supply chains away from China. The World Bank highlights India's impressive leap in ease of doing business, climbing seventy-nine spots from 142 to 63 in just seven years among 190 countries.

This event offers a unique opportunity to connect with industry leaders, explore business prospects, and gain insights into the vibrant Indian market. Don't miss your chance to expand your footprint in one of the world's most dynamic economies.
